This is clearly not working.

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Ugh. The last month and a half has been incredibly stressful...in a nutshell it boils down to a few key things.

1. My grandpa went into the hospital in mid May due to some uriology issues. He's home not but with a catheter for the foreseeable future, things could have been much worse, but its super hard for me to see him this way. He's almost 92 years old and has essentially given up.

2. DJs car died and needed far more in repairs than it was worth, which brings us to having one car again. No biggie, but my car needs close to 1,000.00 in repairs soon. Ugh.

3. Work is out of control, people keep getting fired left and right; three people in the last three weeks. Those of us left are walking on eggshells. I'm so anxious about things that its making me physically sick.

Phew. Okay. Now that the pity party is over, I need to come up with a viable, realistic plan of action. The family and I are going to Disney in November, I have beautiful clothes I bought before getting married that I haven't worn yet...I don't want to be the size I am, uncomfortable in a bathing suit on vacation. So. Ultimately I'd like to gain muscle and not focus on a number, but number will help me stay focused.

Right now, today, I weigh 190.4lbs. I think a reasonable goal weight is 50lbs total, which would put me at 140.

For the rest of the month I need to focus on the following:

1 Continue to avoid drinking soda at work. Increase my water intake.

2. Continue to pack lunches for work. Make sure to include enough protein, so I don't snack throughout my shift.

Financial goal: Sell my extra furniture and get the car fixed!
